4.  Crucial On the Water Tips- What to Bring/Wear - note from the Captains
  • Be hydrated before practice and bring extra water! **The Occoquan does not turn on their water source until about late-March.**
  • Have a snack in your bag for after practice to replenish those calories and energy
  • It is about 5 degrees cooler than the land's temperature on the river, so always wear more layers. It is better to have extra clothes which you can stash under your seat in the boat.
  • Crew is a water sport, so also have an extra full change of clothes, especially socks, in case you get wet.
  • Wind and rainbreakers are essentials for practice, especially for coxswains, who should also bring warm gloves and sunglasses. 
5.  Bus Update
  • The first day of bus service has been pushed back to Monday, March 2, due to the change in practice venue from Sandy Run to Woodson H.S. for this week.
